Financial Aid

In keeping with its desire to attract and maintain a diverse student body, The Well School offers a need-based financial aid program, though funding is limited. The aid is intended to support families with children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade who otherwise would not be able to meet the cost of attending The Well. (Financial aid is not available for the preschool years.) Financial need is determined by School and Student Services.

The Well School unfortunately does not have the resources to award financial aid to all who qualify. Therefore, the overall strength of a candidate's application is used as a criterion for distributing aid. Financial aid awards are made to those candidates who successfully meet the criteria for admission. In addition, we seek to maintain an average class size and a balanced ratio of girls and boys. Lastly, we want to ensure that students who have been at The Well for most of their education can complete the school, even if a family’s economic situation changes. The entire financial aid process is confidential.

To receive further information about financial aid, please read below and also feel free to contact our Business Manager at 603-924-6908 ext. 31 or accounting@wellschool.org.

The process for filing for financial aid is as follows:

  1. All returning families must complete a request for financial aid by March 1, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year, by completing the Financial Aid Application.

  2. New families must make their request known with their application to The Well School.

  3. All families must show financial need by filling out the SSS Parents’ Financial Statement. The Well School’s SSS code is 3067.

  4. All requests will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee. Priority for aid will be given to returning students in higher grade levels first. No financial aid is awarded to preschool students.

  5. The financial aid amount for each year is determined by the budgeting process.

  6. Letters awarding financial aid will be sent to families by March 15, 2020.
